that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others that it was a coordinated terror attack, likely tied to al-qaeda. >>> a statement yesterday by a spokesman for the director of the national intelligence said, the intelligence committee believes at first that this was a spontaneous mob action, and that it was communicated to the obama administration, then later revised to say that it was a, quote, deliberate and organized terrorist attack carried out by extremists. it's unclear, though, when that assessment was revised, because ambassador rice was still describing it as spontaneous five days after the attack. >> molly, thank you. well, governor romney is spending his weekend off the campaign trail and prepping for his first big debate against president obama. the romney campaign says it is expecting some tough barbs from a candidate well versed in presidential debates, but the governor is no spraininger to debates as well, setting expectations high for the first face-off. former new hampshire governor john sununu is joining us now to tell us what governor romney needs to do to make a di

embassy stevens, two navy seals, and one other american were assassinated. rather than tell the truth, and acknowledge that the al-qaeda link existed, admit that the president's triumphant killing of bin laden was by no means marking the end of international terrorism, members of the administration chose to lie and initiate what appears to be a widespread cover-up about what they knew and when they knew it. now it's obvious they want us to all to think that al-qaeda is no longer a threat to america. what do they do? they blame the so-called spontaneous event on a youtube trailer. let's take a look at the campaign of misinformation in all the days following this attack. >> we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video. >> this is under investigation. the unrest around the region has been in response to this video. we were not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating than attack on the u.s. mission in banghazi was planned or imminent. >> it began spontaneously in banghazi. it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cair

away from that term and frankly if you caulk to stevens' family and the other three families, they're deceased and we can play the rhetorical plan, it's pretty clear. the libyan official, boots on the ground, said it was a terrorist act. they don't normally show up with rpgs and grenades and other things if it's going to be a peaceful demonstration. it certainly looks prearranged. who's responsible we don't know yet but we'll find out. >> it's clear now that these have become part of a dialogue in the presidential campaign. one of the things the libyan president also said to ann curry, it lacks to be a branch of al qaeda. that's something we heard after the benghazi attack happened. where do you think we are now in terms of terrorism. obviously as the president said, the traditional al qaeda as we know it seems to have been decimated. top leaders including osama bin laden are gone but where are we? >> i think again that's a statement. the ail die is the al qaeda. there are mutant forms. there are a lot of wannabes and look-alikes. i think active terrorism in spite of the fact that
